  • Syrian violinist Mohamad Hamami to kick off series of online shows

DUBAI: The Dubai Opera is bringing the music home to locked-down fans because of coronavirus restrictions with a series of performances from famous artists that would be livestreamed on social media.

Kicking of the series would be Syrian violinist Mohamad Hamami, who will perform famous Arabic and International tunes from his home for 45 minutes on Thursday, starting 6:00 p.m. Dubai time.

Hamami’s live session, with repeat performances on April 16 and 23, will be streamed on Dubai Opera’s Facebook and YouTube accounts.

“Dress up at home and watch the concert at the Dubai Opera,” the Syrian violinist, founder of the renowned Sharq Orchestra, commented in his Facebook account.

Internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Guy Manoukian is also scheduled to perform on April 11, which will feature 45 minutes of his new releases and all-time Arabic classics.

This interactive live Instagram session, which starts at 7 p.m. Dubai time, will be on Dubai Opera’s Instagram account.
